WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY

It’s raining , for the first time since decamping to my new temporary lockdown hide , wildlife Wednesday will have to be renamed Wet Wednesday.

All the usual suspects, wood pigeons, collared doves, house sparrows , starlings , magpie , blackbird and one half a sleep hog in the entrance of the Hibernation Arms a grumpy looking Bud the hedgehog. Sandra the squirrel made a quick inspection of the nut buffet before she was scared off by noice from my neighbour.
